Well I am still here....no beach trip yet, maybe this weekend but we still are not sure. Mixed emotions are running high in our household, as our older daughter is moving out and moving on TOMORROW! She is doing her last couple of college courses on~line to graduate, and is moving over to the West Coast of Florida with her long time boyfriend who has already graduated and is working there. As any parent knows who has had a child grow up and leave the nest....it's bittersweet. It's what you strive for~their independence, it's what you hope for~a happy life. She has been away at college for a long time now, but this will be different and we are thrilled for her and will miss seeing her in the room that she grew up in. Hmmmm.....I will have an extra room to decorate now and I guess that's the perk!
Packing it all up.....amazing what she has crammed into her Honda Civic!
I love this photo of the girls on our cruise.
I have been cleaning up my computer this morning and organizing photo files~as it's getting sooooo slow!!! I found these and am filing them away for posterity....and since most of you have seen the new Romantic Country Magazine by now, I thought that I would share some more photos. I can't use any of Dan Mayer's photos, so these are some that I took. By the way, congrats Dan on the birth of your twins~may they only have hair as curly as yours!
My small studio space which now may be moved into the upcoming spare room. Overtaken by camera equipment and styling supplies that Fifi brought for the shoot.
A view from the family room into the dining room that is on the other side of the kitchen. In Florida we don't really use formal dining rooms much, as we mostly entertain outside. I am glad that this house doesn't have a separate formal dining room for that reason.
Opposite direction, dining to family room. I enjoy the open feeling of this space, and I think that the white cabinets make it light and airy.
Fifi attends to every detail in her styling, including sprinkling rose petals on the floor.
Not every room made it in, but here are some shots of the boudoir and master bath~my refuge at the end of the day.
It was a RARE cold day here in Miami, hence the long sleeves and bulky sweater. A fun time:-)
Off to the Studio for some projects and special orders. Have a beautiful weekend dear friends!
Lots of love,
